Hi

 

If you only un-plugged for a short time, you should not have needed to reprogram.

It should have retained the channel memory.

Check the cable connection and make sure the center conductor did not get bent or broken when you reconnected the cable. Also you may want to connect another tv

to this cable outlet to make sure that the cable is working ok.

I love this site! $9 instead of a repairman or new/used frig can't be beaten. This older woman will worry less now that she knows about this site. Bless you all.
